business environment in china than the united states. well, why is that? it's because they have no worker protections, no environmental -- >> they have no human rights, david. >> and low wages. so is he saying he wants to bring us back to that point? like to the days of cal coolidge as joy suggests? >> david, yes. >> there's a lot going on that doesn't compute and when it does compute it's rather scary. >> there's something called the moonlight magnolia theory of economics. the south practices it right now. when you strip away unions and you can lower wages, businesses are more profitable. that's why wall street -- you see the stock market tick up when companies lay people off because it's considered more efficient. >> romney's closing campaign appears to be focused on frightening people. in ohio he puts out an ad that frightens people as david has said into believing they will lose their job in the auto industry but in virginia he frightens them into believing they will lose their health care. listen to this. >> perhaps needing the care of a specialist, if he or she makes a call to the d
headaches for mitt romney. while protecting our environment. across america, these technologies protect air - by monitoring air quality and reducing emissions... ...protect water - through conservation and self-contained recycling systems... ... and protect land - by reducing our footprint and respecting wildlife. america's natural gas... domestic, abundant, clean energy to power our lives... that's smarter power today. prand you're seeing that rightno enequit in amnow.a...ives... over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so r
, close the budget deficit. make, create a regulatory environment that encourages investment and certainty. that those are improving the situation. governor romney is also, however, correct that there's a long way to go. and that there are lots of people in ohio and elsewhere around this country who are unemployed or underemployed and we have huge progress. and 2% gdp growth is nothing to crow about. in fact it's less growth than in 2011 and less than 2010. >> all the economic news is about republican policies and all the bad economic news is because of democratic policies? it's funny, it's just disingenuous. >> how much of this is a problem in terms of how people feel, rachel. we see more economic optimism in the country and yet people are still feeling like the obama record is lackluster and you look at the recovery still not feeling like it's robust enough. >> and you see it just in the raw consumer confidence numbers. you see consumer confidence trending up and the unemployment rate trending down and you see the deficit dropping year to year. you see things going in the right direction

environment. >> let's look at what governor christie of new jersey had to say today on the "today" show and on "morning joe." let's listen. >> i was on the phone at midnight again last night with the president personally. he has expedited the declaration of new jersey as a disaster area. the president has been outstanding in this and so have the folks at fema. the president has been all over this and deserves great credit. i have been on the phone with him yesterday personally three times. he gave me his number at the white house and told me to call him if i needed anything, and he absolutely means it. >> that's great. >> it's been very good working with the president and his administration. >> he also responded with annoyance after a fox news personality asked him an overtly political question about mitt romney. let's take a listen. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >> right. >> i've got a job to do here in new jersey. i have got 2.4 million people
environment problem. he's got an intensity problem. he's got an image problem. and he's got a ballot problem. and they all add up to a challenging tuesday next week. >> image problem? that's a new one. romney campaign senior advisers are out and about, making bold statements to reporters, yet providing little evidence. >> the firewall that i think they talked about was iowa, wisconsin, and ohio. and right now, their firewall is burning. >> well, but the polling tells a much different story. it's not looking pretty for mitt romney if ohio. the president has a sizable lead back in wisconsin. and he's up in virginia by five points. the president even has a narrow lead in florida. today, mitt romney campaigned in florida, to try to make up some ground. but it may be too late. nbc affiliate wttv obtained a memo from a worried gop adviser in west palm beach. >> we obtained an internal memo from a gop campaign adviser that says early and absentee turnout is starting to look troubling. the memo's conclusion? that the democratic turnout machine is cleaning our clock. >> in the meantime, romney's camp
to the media environment over the course of the week, it's blackout coverage. so the president's been in that coverage. and to some extent, much driven by the storm but he's -- he's there, he's the president on screen. governor romney has been nowhere. he's just -- it's not his fault. he's just not part of this conversation. he doesn't have anything to say about it. he doesn't have a role to play. so if you're a challenger, running a presidential campaign, in the last week to essentially be blocked from the airwaves for five straight days it's a big problem. forget whether he had momentum or didn't. it's a huge problem for a challenger. the presidential looked presidential. the combination of that the fact he's gotten policy right, substance right, optics right, and has gotten boost that he's gotten from governor christie, which has been huge, i think, not game changer, but to whatever extent you could weigh this in out -- who knows what the effect is on tangible votes -- but in terms of what's happened over the week a good week for president obama, and a problematic week for governor

have to be done for the environment, for the situation in which we live. >> can i ask you to drill down a little bit. if president obama is affected, what do you think would be required in a second term for him to stand up more to the oil companies than he has in the first term? >> for one thing, he won't be running for re-election but it's congress that needs to talk about this. the american people need to be aware that there is a commercial interest that is fighting to hold on to us not addressing problems that that interest is causing. i've become a cynic. it's terrible. i'm a realist. >> as i became older i became more of a realist and less of an idealist but i still have some idealism to say, we can make change but we have to pay attention and right now people have more things to pay attention to than the future of climate change and yet we are in this situation because we were not -- >> not touched by it. >> we can't let you go without pointing out the month you're about to have. in los angeles, you're getting a star on the hollywood walk of fame and a big star-studded concert in
on to the environment. one of the big failures of his first term was cap and trade. the vote on that which really hurt democrats is something that has made them gunshy about talking about that issue, but i think there's no doubt if the president wins and he gets a budget deal, he will move to immigration and energy including trying to deal with climate change. that is in some ways the toughest issue because house republicans are willing to raise taxes in the end, i think, they're not willing to deal with this. >> dr. sachs, stay with us. chuck, thank you. we'll see you on "the daily rundown" at 9:00. up next, meteorologist bill karins with the latest on sandy's track as the storm's outer bands begin to come ashore. we'll be right back. email marketing from constant contact reaches people in a place they're checking every day -- their inbox. and it gives you the tools to create custom emails that drive business. it's just one of the ways constant contact can help you grow your small business. sign up for your free trial today at constantcontact.com/try. >>> welcome back to "morning joe." it's 7:35 here
